Our story

Having worked for many years in large banking and corporate companies, our MD Tom McNamara identified a concerning trend in security and privacy. As a legal professional with years of expertise in compliance and the technology surrounding compliance, he often saw large consultancy firms offer poorly-planned security services and offered very little accountability.

As GDPR emerged and cyber security concerns grew, Tom could see that more traditional companies viewed security as a cost. On the other hand, the new generation of Saas companies understand that investing in privacy and security can help businesses grow and prosper.

And with that, Apex Privacy was born. Based in Ireland, and working with a wide network of privacy and cyber security consultants, we now provide highly tailored expertise-driven services to start-ups and scale-ups. By offering your company experienced people who understand your needs, we can provide cost-effective privacy and cyber security with agility and purpose.
